Wry humor EBP.

In all seriousness, I'm sure you saw the Fed printed up another $20B to throw at Citi this morning.

We are screwed and rapidly headed for the Great Depression 2.

We are off grid (connected but not using) with passive solar, solar heat and wind augment on 262 acres of very farmable (wheat, rye, soybean, corn) and huntable land in North Carolina. Three greenhouses for veggies and citrus. Enough power to run the puter so I can stream the boys.

11 pounds of bullion in the safety deposit box, 22 pounds at home in 2 - 4 ounce coin.

18 beef cattle, 7 dairy cows, more chickens than I can count at once. Wife is a veterinarian.

Three Barrett .50 cal sniper rifles, 4 Bushmasters, 3 .308 Win mags and 35,000 rounds of ammo - 9 mm, .40 and .45.

It's coming, I'm almost scared shitless - but we are ready.

LOL.

Which one would you like? The Barrett is good out to about 2000 -2500 yds (3000 in the hands of a SEAL sniper). Bushmaster good to 1600-1700. The Win Mag .308 is is probably what you need. Depends on what you are going after - there's not much left from a Barrett shot except some goo and bone fragments.

In all seriousness, I think we (the country) are headed for some very rough times. I don't understand why the Fed and the amalgam of 535 idiots on Capitol Hill think you can just print more money, throw the bill on the already huge pile of National debt and think we can bail our way out of this. Sometimes you just have to let the ship sink and then go back and build a better one with the survivors.

Sorry to be such a downer on this wonderful site - but I am truly scared/nervous/edgy about the future. I'm glad my kids are done with school and employed in the service industry (teacher and nurse).

BTW aren't you newly back on the boards after a get better hiatus? Not to pry or anything, just want to wish you the best and good luck.

Be Well my friend.

Hey my brother - goo and bone fragments sounds like just the ticket :)

i find myself agreeing with your pessimism regarding our great country. my girls are only 10 and 9, and i am scared out of my wits for what the future might hold for them. (especially if i am in jail after my assassination attempt - lol). very scary, fractured, morally bankrupt world out there right now - and our young are very impressionable. I am glad for your kids though - sounds like they are doing great work - teacher and nurse - something for which you should be very very proud.

p.s. you are not prying with regard to me. it is pretty well known i have been in and out of detoxes and rehabs for the past year. this time was a 7 week stay. i have never felt better. Thank you very very much for your well wishes - i truly appreciate that.

peace and friendship

dire

I thought so.
It keeps with the goo and bone fragment theme.
